Re: Rack And Pinion exploration

Yeah the bushings vs rack fitment isn’t the best on some combos. I think the problem is there are lots of rack variations. I had to put a small sheet metal spacer behind the non steering side when using the stock replacement rack but with the 2.4 heavy duty rack it was a task getting both sides in.

Re: Jordan's '72 2 door KA project

That was fun to read. Can’t wait to see if the improved balance makes for a better burn out machine! Although my buddy Josh just pulled his lightened flywheel out of his KA. Said it made the gear box sound like it was going to explode. He even swapped to a different trans thinking that might have be...

Re: "83 280ZX close ratio box and 3:90 differential

The SR trans doesn't bolt on as is. It's easy to make it bolt on though. Just gotta take your bell and drill the shifter fork guide holes bigger and machine the secondary shaft bearing hole in the bell bigger, or run the B size bearing. I've done it. My buddy did his with a delwalt drill! haha.

Re: "83 280ZX close ratio box and 3:90 differential

Keith our box is the same as the SR20DE box in my car except I have the 3.3 1st gear, which is useless. 2nd through 5th are the exact same gears. I personally want to sort out a .6 5th gear. As a daily driver .86 SUCKS!!!!! I don't see any of my cars racing future requiring 5th anyways. So if yours ...

Re: de-tuning a race engine

My favorite car to ride in at my autox event is a first year rabbit with 400whp. It’s insane when the power kicks it. It reminds me of riding my YZ250. My tame NA SR is so damn boring afterwards. Maybe you should take some rides before redoing the KA. I rode in my buddies SR 510. 550cc injectors an...

Re: de-tuning a race engine

Just remember, if you get a stock SR it will take a beating 8 days a week without blinking. If you rebuild this race engine it will be a constant tight rope walk keeping it happy. I my personal experience everyone says they want a racecar 510, but what they really want a car with power steering, pow...

Re: Fred's 73 2dr 510

These pics are 10 years old! Wow time flies. The engine fit perfect and the car still drives around with the same setup in it. It was a S14 SR though. There engine side mount is 7 degrees different then the S13. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/qlf882yrnQ5aaYqH69LzfRiuDknm-taCIR_S0XrKY2Mfrz7uVGnMeZ...

Re: de-tuning a race engine

I've never got a bad engine from an engine importer and installed a ton into 510's (Me, Frank and his son Dillon used to install them all the time for people). I'm sure there is a local shop you can order one from. I've personally never ridden in, or driven a built NA car that was all that impressiv...

Re: Rack And Pinion exploration

Thanks for the feedback. After I realized the links were ALL wrong, I did wonder if that was intentional.... Of course. That 2.4 will fit in there if I have to use a crowbar and a hood scoop or trim some (more) off the valve cover. Not going to start re-doing the engine now. The sway bar is the onl...
